Both the communities are nature-worshippers and have vibrant drapes and dance forms, she said.

"Miji and Rongmei dances will be showcased for the first time to the UK audience," Vinjamuri said, whose organisation is engaged in advocating protection and conservation of the environment through dance forms.

She lauded the efforts of Arunachal Pradesh and Manipur culture ministers Taba Tedir and Jayantakumar Singh respectively for extending help for the event.
